Announcing a new Meetup for Nerd Fun - Atlanta!

What: Marx Brothers - Duck Soup at the High (Rich Auditorium)

When: Saturday, August 28,[masked]:45 PM

Where: Rich Theatre at the High Musuem
1280 Peachtree Street, N.E.
Atlanta, GA 30309

Included in the program is an early surrealist Disney animated short called "Skeleton Dance."

We'll walk to a nearby eatery for drinks or dinner afterward. If the weather is not so good, we'll head across the courtyard to Table 1280.

In this 1933 Marx Brothers film, the mythical country of Freedonia is broke and on the verge of revolution. Mrs. Teasdale (Margaret Dumont), Freedonia's principal benefactress, will lend the country 20 million dollars if the president withdraws and places the government in the hands of the "fearless, progressive" Rufus T. Firefly (Groucho Marx).

Memorable quote: "Join the army and see the navy."

Cost: $7.00 (non-member)

See you there!
